In this video, we totally rebuild my hardtail, and then ride the whale tail for the first time without rear suspension. Overall, this build was quite rushed due to our need to continue filming for the other channel, but if you decide to build your own bike I recommend taking your time! A lot can go wrong on a mountain bike, and your safety depends on it.

OneUp EDC Tool https://www.oneupcomponents.com/products/edc-tool-system
Oneup Components kindly send the EDC tool, handlebars, and stem for this build. If you would like an EDC tool and do not want to thread your fork, just wait for the adapter to come back in stock.
Wheels manufacturing sent over the bottom bracket and some spare derailleur hangers. Their website-based derailleur hanger and bottom bracket finder is actually one of the best such tools I’ve seen.
Crankbrothers sent me a set of pre-release Synthesis alloy rims to test out a few months ago and now that they’re being sold to the masses I’m allowed to talk about them. These have been on my bike since January.
Thanks for sending this bleed kit, Truman! I currently have all my bleed supplies in an oily disorganized pile, so this was a welcome addition to the shop.
